DUSHANBE, July 30. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov repeatedly said on Wednesday that Ukraine had plunged into a civil war.

“The present Ukrainian authorities have ignored legitimate demands of southeastern regions on equal participation in making constitutional reforms and are trying to curb protests with the use of force to win a war against militia, who took up arms to defend their interests,” Lavrov told young diplomats at a meeting in Tajik capital.

“A deep crisis in Ukraine is a matter of special concern,” he said. “We have repeatedly told our Western partners that it is inadmissible to present Ukraine with an erroneous choice of ‘either with us or against us’, but our warnings just fell on deaf ears,” the top Russian diplomat added.
